NAU Head Coach Jack Murphy Joins Arizona Basketball

After seven seasons as head coach at Northern Arizona University, Jack Murphy is leaving the ‘Jacks to become the assistant head coach to Sean Miller at Arizona. “It’s very exciting to welcome back Jack Murphy and his family to the University of Arizona,” Miller said. “Jack combines invaluable head coaching experience, recruiting at the national level of college basketball, and an NBA pedigree. More importantly, Jack brings a love for Arizona Basketball and our community like no one that I have met in coaching. He is a tremendous person, a caring family man, and an outstanding coach. All of us in our program look forward to working with him as we prepare for an exciting year ahead.”

Murphy had a eight-year stint in Tucson on Coach Lute Olson’s staff as a team manager, recruiting coordinator, administrative assistant, video coordinator and director of operations.
